This week’s Energy Insiders focuses on the Finkel Review delivered last Friday. RenewEconomy Editor Giles Parkinson and ITK analyst David Leitch discuss the main themes of the much-awaited report.

Can it achieve political compromise and provide investment certainty, given that it does not appear to consider the 2°C climate target. Will consumers get on board, given that they are promised a $92 reduction in bills in 2030, the same day they are told their bills are going up $300 in 2017.

Will the proposed energy reforms enhance energy security, and can we have faith in the principal institutional actors. And given that wind and solar are the cheapest source of new generation, does it matter whether it is a CET or a RET?
